41 Weeks and waiting....

At this point we aren't even counting anymore, we are just waiting!

Well the doctor says that my cervix is completely thinned out and Macayla is in the canal, now we are just waiting for labor to start. She is measuring at 7lbs 4oz. So if I don't go into labor naturally by next Friday, I have a date and time scheduled to induce, March 4th at 7:15am.

So we are keeping our fingers (and toes) crossed that she will make her big debut any day now!

A stubborn lil one...

Well we are now at 40+ weeks, and Macayla is being stubborn. I go every Friday to the doctor, and last Friday, a day before my due date, the doc was going to strip the membrane and hopefully stimulate labor. But he said that since only one side of the cervix was soft he had to fore-go the stripping. So now we are just WAITING! We will know more on Friday if I haven't gone into labor! So once again....stay tuned!

39 Weeks and STILL counting

Well we have good news and bad news....

Let's start with the good news. The good news is that today is my last day at work, it's been very busy for me today trying to finalize everything and prepare myself as well as my clients for my absence. Now as soon as today is over I will be able to relax and hope for Macayla to make her appearance.

The bad news, he's not going to try anything to induce any kind of labor. He said that she will come in time and that I needed to relax and when she's ready, she will come. So we know she is already going to be stubborn. (Now who do you think she gets that from, Mom or Dad?)

So my due date is February 16th and he is content to wait until then before he begins any kind of induction. He says she is ready, her head is in the canal, we are just waiting for my body to be ready and allow her to come down further.

So now that I won't be working I can relax and prepare for her arrival. Keep checking back for more updates or pics of the new addition!

38 weeks and counting....

Well I went in to see my doctor, and here's the update.... Macayla has dropped she is head down and her head is in the birth canal, so it's only a matter of time now. I go back next week and if I still haven't gone into labor he will start some "tactics" to get labor going.

But more importantly, I haven't gained any weight! :)

Keep checking back, it won't be long now.....
